One of the key ingredients is the Tuttorosso tomatoes. I chose the diced tomatoes. Tuttorosso means “all red” in Italian and these tomatoes definitely are. They are made by the great folks at Red Gold and have a pretty extensive recipe collection on their site – if you’re looking for something specific.
Before everything goes in the crockpot – sauté a few of them vegetables that might need a little extra cooking. I did the carrots and mushrooms in a bit of garlic & olive oil. Then into the crock pot with everything else!
I put it on one Sunday evening so I had it ready for work the next day. This would be great to make smoothies out of too – pop in a blender and you’ve got a healthy drink – with double the veggies (V8 + more veggies!!)
This recipe does make a LOT of soup – but it freezes easily as well.
